Holographic Luke Skywalker by Hasbro

July 13, 2010

Another entry in the Saga Collection is Holographic Luke Skywalker. He’s supposed to be from the message the RD-D2 plays for Jabba, telling him that he can keep the two droids as his gift (the scene portrayed in this painting by Tim Proctor). It’s an interesting way of dealing with a “holographic” character — a different approach than the “cast them in blue plastic” approach that they usually use. They’ve used a sort of translucent plastic that still has Luke’s normal colors. I’m not sure it’s entirely successful, but it’s definitely a unique effect. I’m not sure why he comes with a light saber, since he doesn’t use one as a hologram.
